If we had to keep only one cinema in Paris, it might well be Studio 28. Perched high up in Montmartre, this mythical venue has seen a parade of living legends and great classics of cinema pass through its darkened rooms. It opened in 1928 with Abel Gance’s avant-garde masterpiece ‘Napoléon’, and since then hasn’t stopped offering the public the best feature films of every era. Charlie Chaplin, Luis Buñuel, Franck Capra and even the jack-of-all-trades Jean Cocteau have all put in an appearance here. Conceived as a crossroads between cinema and other art forms (photography, painting), the cinema stands out principally for its nostalgic atmosphere. Tea in a shaded garden? Photography exhibition? Avant-première? Here, nothing is impossible.
